Need Volunteers? We Can Help

NeedVolunteersWe are happy to volunteer for not-for-profit organizations in our community. Please call or email and let us know about your volunteers needs. Some of the areas we can help with include:

 

 

 

 

Outdoors

You have a a garden, but it's a lot of work to maintain. Our experience with tending and harvesting the Schuyler County Cornell Cooperative Extension Teaching Garden and other area gardens has prepared us to help you with:

  • Planting
  • Watering
  • Pulling weeds
  • Harvesting
Keep things clean

Does your non-profit organization need some light cleaning? Out volunteers can help by:

  • Dusting and wiping counters/tables
  • Sweeping/Mopping floors
Recycle

Are the cans and bottles piling up at your organization? Let us take care of them! We can pick up your cleaned, recyclable items, sort, and transport them to the recycling center. By donating your redeemable recyclables to The Arc - you can support our continued volunteer efforts.

Deliver and Distribute

If you're a non-profit organization that needs help distributing materials such as promotional flyers or pamphlets to locations in Montour Falls and Watkins Glen, we can help you. We also deliver:

  • Meals on Wheels
  • Happy Bouquets (our flower arrangements)
  • Dog Bones (our homemade pet treats)

If you need delivery or distribution of similar products - let us know!

Get things organized

Many non-profit organizations need help with preparing marketing materials like brochures, giveaway items, etc. We can help with:

  • Sorting
  • Folding
  • Collating
  • Assembling
  • Filling bags
  • Packing/packaging

Some of our projects include: Collecting and sorting donations for the Friends of the Watkisn Glen Library used book sale, sorting items for Meals on Wheels, and packing meal bags. If you need a similar service, we can help.

Adding Creativity

Does your organization have an upcoming event? Do you need a creative way to thank, congratulate, or reward someone? Let us help! Our volunteers are talented artists. Here are just some of the items we create:

  • Greeting cards - birthday, holiday, get well, any occasion you may need!
  • Jewelry - charms for necklaces, bracelets, etc.
  • Bookmarks
  • Clipboard/Notepads
  • Centerpieces
  • Happy Bouquets (we repurpose donated flowers and create small flower arrangements that can be given as thank you, get well, or other gifts)
  • We're always coming up with fun new items!

We regularly deliver our greeting cards to residents at The Falls Home and Seneca View Skilled Nursing. We've created rewards for participants of a Cornell Cooperative Extension program. We make hundreds of bookmarks for the annual Watkins Glen Library book sale. Give us a call and let us know your project.
